Thank you Dan and Kai for a lovely week in Chalet Jora. Delicious food, homely chalet and amazing staff always willing to go above and beyond to help. Only downside was Bansko itself with its ridiculously long gondola queue to get up to the ski area each day but the chalet team did everything they could to make that tolerable.

What a holiday! As a family group of 9, Chalet Jora was perfect for us all. A cosy, cute, traditional Bulgarian chalet hosted by the wonderful Tash and Dan. We were so lucky to have this lovely pair look after us- from lifts up and down to the gondola, delicious homemade 3 course meals, to the scrummiest of afternoon cakes...

Chalet Jora was one of the most amazing holidays I have ever been on. My friends and I were lucky enough to spend our first Christmas away from family and friends with our amazing hosts Tash and Dan.

I stayed at Chalet Jora over Christmas this year and it was absolutely amazing! The hosts, Tash and Dan made us feel like we were at home, which was exactly what a bunch of Australians away from home at Christmas needed! Andy and Laura, the owners, made everything very easy for us, booking our lift passes and everything in advance....

This was our second stay at Chalet Jora, and we had another fantastic week. The lounge at the chalet has been remodelled and is now very spacious and modern, we especially enjoyed the surround sound when watching movies! Laura made our booking incredibly easy, and arrange all of our lift passes and equipment for us in advance at discounted prices...

Tucked away off a side street I could never find my way home to (thank god for Rory coming to the rescue more than once!), Chalet Jora was an unexpected surprise. Beautiful, cosy, log fires, comfy rooms...Hosts Rory and Hayley could not have made us more comfortable. Three course meals, stunning homemade cakes every day. Luxury!

Hayley and Rory hosted a group of our 14 friends in Chalet Jora. From touching down in Sofia airport, where the transfer was waiting for us, everything was sorted on our behalf so we could concentrate on skiing and having a great time. Hayley and Rory were incredibly friendly, accommodating and flexible. The chalet itself is warm, cosy, nothing too...

Stayed at Chalet Jora for a week in February. The welcome we received was second to none. Rory, Hayley and Jay couldn't do enough for us and went way beyond expectations when I broke my collar bone - a GREAT team in a very homely, spacious chalet.
